Archive File Name of File Adapter is too long

Once a file is processed, SOA’s file adapter has option to archive files to a directory of our choice. File gets archived properly. However, archive file name of file adapter is too long. This is because, SOA attaches, timestamp and a Digest to the filename

File Adapter File name too long
Archive Property


In our environment, we had a process which was moving files from archive directory to another tool . The external tool was failing as the filenames were too long.  With, we had to apply  a patch for this problem. We also had to manually add the following to fileadapter’s jca file to remove digest from archived filename.

<property name="UseDigest" value="false"/>
Archive File Name File Adapter long
FileName – With and Without Digest

With SOA 12c, the property “UseDigest” is still not available as part of UI. We still need to manually add it to jca file.

    1. Long too path error!
      “Long path tool” is very helpful for this problem. You can solve this problem like copy, delete, long path files by using this tool. I used to have similar problems too, but after using “long path tool” everything was solved.
